    Together Rising transforms collective heartbreak into effective action.

    In a world where crises abound and heartbreak is in every community, people who want to help often don’t know where to turn. Together Rising is where to turn.

    Whether it’s pulling children out of the sea outside the refugee camps in Greece, helping abandoned kids on the streets in Indianapolis, establishing the first opioid recovery home for pregnant teens in New Hampshire, building a maternal health wing in Port-au-Prince, providing a single mother access to breast cancer treatment, or keeping a foster family’s heat on in Texas — Together Rising identifies what is breaking the hearts of our givers as they look around their world and their community, and then we connect our givers’ generosity with the people and organizations who are effectively addressing that critical need.

    We live in a world where people believe that We Belong To Each Other.
    We live in a world where people give away hard-earned money to strangers.
    We live in a world where Love Wins.

    Close to 22 million children nationwide rely on the public school system in order to eat.

    On an average day, 20 million free school lunches are distributed to children – sometimes their only reliable daily meal.

    Right now, roughly 38.8 million public school students are out of school.

    This means — on top of the anxiety, isolation, and economic instability of this crisis – millions and millions of children and their families don’t have adequate food.

    Although the USDA and state and local authorities are working to implement emergency food-distribution systems, initial capacity is limited, and nationwide help is desperately needed– especially in rural areas, and especially as closures become prolonged.

    Today, through Together Rising, you are investing $250,000 to step into this gap and make sure these kids and their families do not go hungry.

    Dear Together Rising Voters,

    Please consider revoting for Feeding America for the remainder of September.  Otherwise, Charitocracy will once again be feeding the Outer Banks instead of Feeding America or rising to any other non-OBX cause!

    We Charitocracy voters have no idea how our donation to Together Rising will be applied.  The original description provided with this nomination mentions only Flash Mobs but you can see on their website the widely diverse other ways that their board of directors have spent donations.

    Charitocracy voters already have a widely diverse selection of nominated causes to choose from.  Why are we relinquishing our choice of a specific cause to some other group to make that choice?

    Please re-vote for another of our own specific causes.  I recommend Girls Leadership.  Any girl’s entire future is more important than the short life of a blind dog.
